Great experience with awesome drivers!

We (3 friends) took Daytrip for 2 of our tours - from Budapest to Zagreb with driver Davor R. and from Zagreb to Vienna with driver Tomislav B. Both experiences were excellent. For the first trip with Davor, he explained to us many aspects of Croatia as well as showed us videos about Zagreb and Dubrovnik, places we were scheduled to visit, overall providing a fantastic experience. For the second trip with Tomislav, while the trip was good again, there was an issue in us reaching Trakoscan castle we had scheduled during the trip due to snow (we were actually stuck in the snow for close to 45 mins, before we managed to setoff). He did try his best to get us moving as soon as possible though, and tried to compensate by bringing us around Vienna for a tour before we headed to the airport, back home. Both drivers were friendly and generally professional. It would be wonderful if more drivers provided value-added services like in the case of Davor, such as videos on destinations being visited, history about places, etc. Overall, we are happy with our services with Daytrip and would be happy to recommend them!

Easy way to travel between cities!

We recently travelled as a family from Budapest to Zagreb. The driver was lovely, car seat was appropriate for my son and car was spacious and clean. Our driver spoke excellent English and allowed for stops along the way. I was really impressed by this service.

High Recommend DayTrip

I would highly recommend DayTrip’s service to anyone interested in having a private car service with the option of site -seeing along the way to their final destination. Our driver, Gyula, was professional and spoke English well. He gave us suggestions for our trip and the car was extremely clean. He also provided waters and made the entire experience stress-free. We had three formal stops on the way from Zagreb to Budapest and he was very prompt and enjoyable to travel with for our several hour journey together. I would absolutely use Team Daytrip again and would highly recommend and have recommended already to friends and colleagues your services . I think it is also important to note that the flexibility to pay the driver the day of our our trip in cash or via credit card beforehand was great. We enjoy that level of flexibility

Stress free trip from Budapest to Zagreb

My husband and I booked Daytrip for our transfer from Budapest to Zagreb. We chose the 2 recommended sightseeing stops and were so happy with the trip from start to finish. Our driver was punctual, friendly, knowledgeable, professional and a safe driver. We thoroughly enjoyed the 2 stops that Daytrip recommended because not only did it break up the drive but more importantly, it enabled us to see new villages that we had not previously experienced. We would highly recommend Daytrip to others as you can sit back and relax, whilst enjoying the amazing scenery.

The Daytrip driver advantage

Daytrip driver
  • Local knowledge about the route from Zagreb to Budapest
    Including available sights
  • English speaking

    All our drivers speak English as well as their native language (and sometimes additional languages too!). They're happy to discuss local history and culture with you, and answer any questions you may have. And because they speak the local language, they're able to provide you with a unique opportunity to connect with natives.

  • Safety first!

    We screen all our drivers for criminal and traffic records, and personally interview each one. We also inspect their cars for safety, comfort, and reliability. All cars must be less than ten years old, in excellent operating condition, and insured as required by local law. And because our drivers are locals, they're familiar with the rules and customs of the road.
